Today I’m sharing my DIY cutting board sign: the lazy way ! The other day, I accidentally sent out a post notification about this sign I had made a while back. But I really didn’t want to share that version of it, cause I really didn’t like how it turned out…so I was flippin out when I saw that it was published and an email sent to everyone’s inbox! Blogging is so much more than just some nice diy’s put in a post! It can be stressful to keep up with all the tech part of it, at least for me! I do like learning about all of it, but I really actually just want to make stuff and post it! Not worry about why on earth that mail got sent out! Oh well. Sorry about that!
So, today I am showing you the make over of the make over kinda deal. I changed up this sign in a super lazy way.
I had bought this cutting board in one of my favourite spanish dollar stores. Not for the kitchen though, I don’t really like using wooden cutting boards in the kitchen anymore. But it’s a great piece of wood for a little project…. and since it came with a hole already, c’mon, what better way to use it than to make a sign!? Super lazy, hey? There’s more lazyness coming up!
I painted it one coat of white chalkpaint and let it dry. I wanted to have it for my entrance hall, on the wall above my side table right next to the door. So the idea had always been to have our family name initial on it : “J” . At my first make over attempt, I had drawn the “J” on it along with a little wreath around it. And I really wasn’t happy with the outcome but at the point didn’t have any other ideas either. So I thought I’d just stick with it and oh well. I had a post all set up, but it ended in the trash…except it didn’t, it was sent out and all. So, now, I was determined to change up the sign in one way or another! I painted it over, but the previously drawn stuff was still visible, so I turned the board around and used that side. I didn’t want to have lots and lots of coats of paint on it, cause I like the wood still shining through. So this below is the other side of the board.
No how get a nice looking “J” on it? And that’s when I remembered the wooden “J” I had bought a couple of years ago in Canada! It’s a really thick and rustic looking “J” and I thought it would look really nice on this board. I painted it with black chalkpaint and glued it onto the board! Nothing more, as I really like the bold look of it. Plus, I have these little chalkboards [now with spring themes] on the other wall, so the black and white look is really cool I think. All I added was a lace ribbon and that’s it! How lazy is that!?
